Another Way Apple’s Fight With Google Is Hurting Users

On August 8, Google showed off a new version of its main Search app for iOS that had the best voice interface I’ve ever seen on Apple’s platform. Google told us the app was not only finished, it had been submitted to Apple. Almost two months have passed since then. So where is it? Well, Apple doesn’t talk about these things, so all we know is that it isn’t out. Google’s PR response to questions like this is that “we’re working closely with Apple” on getting it released. There’s an obvious reason Apple would sit on this app. It competes with Siri. Siri goes out of its way to avoid searching Google, because Google would get tons of precious search data that way.
